Presented at the New Mexico Library Association Annual Conference


DSpaceUNM, the University of New Mexicos institutional repository for research and creative works, went live in March of 2005. This presentation covers the University Libraries', the Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center, and the Law Libraries' multi-disciplined effort to launch the repository, market the service to UNM staff and faculty, and spread scholarly communication awareness at UNM. A behind-the-scenes tour of daily maintenance needs and personnel skills required to run DSpace software is shared.'
